Even "old school" tuners still generally use an EGT to get an idea of the combustion temps. I've never heard of any tuner, old school or not, going by butt dyno and exhaust soot to judge how well it's running.

It may well be running perfectly fine, but I wouldn't risk it. Injectors are one thing and are relatively easy to scale, but as soon as you start swapping the MAF housing, etc., all bets are off if you don't have a wideband to check open loop.
